After a slow start in June, “Titanic” gradually gathered a devoted following of fans, who sang along with “My Heart Will Go On” during the finale, and started selling out almost every night. Only scattered seats remain for performances at the Chelsea theatre.

« Deep down, I was like, ‘We’re a tiny little off-Broadway show. How are we going to survive?' » said Rousouli, who also plays Jack Dawson. started to pick up steam and it became a thing, which is amazing. »

The larger Daryl Roth – where Fuerza Bruta chilled audiences for nine years – has room for around 100 more seated spectators, bringing the total to some 270. But the Blue-led musical aims to keep its disjointed.

The director said the front rows will be « a kind of VIP experience » to « retain that fun, cozy Asylum vibe that we’ve established. »

Mindelle added: « There will always be intimacy. Tye has made sure that we always play on all sides and that there will be people very close to us, which I personally like because it gives the public the impression of being in something special and secret.

The VIPs have already descended the stairs of the « Titanic ». Andrew Lloyd Webber, whose « Bad Cinderella » hits Broadway in February, stopped by recently. Just like « Titanic » actor Victor Garber, who is a character in the musical. Really.

Frankie Grande plays the dual role of Captain Andrews and the architect, who is only referred to as « Victor Garber ».
